Great Scar>Fire, notable for Phil's bass strength and also for his leadership of the transition from Scar>Fire. Phil definitely lead the way into Fire on the Mountain, in this one. Once FOTM gets going, though, Jerry sizzles!

I think many over looked this show during the summer of 82. We had so many night after night great shows it was easy to be just another show. Now years later I listen and realize how much fun this show was. I loved this tour young and free.Not a care in the world back then.
The sound on this one is very nice and the sonds are top notch also. What I would I give to relive this summer tour again.
5 stars because they were on night after night,except maybe the Zoo but still on fire.
in the greater scheme of things it seems like the Starlight show was a recovery and moving on event after the debacle in OK.. all is again well on the wheel and comes together in a solidly spectacular (is it possible to be both at the same time?)fashion on this night in Minnesota. No need to highlight as the entire show is worth your time and disk space...give a listen and enjoy!

i went through several versions of this show on cassette over the years. all cassettes cut the jam before drums. too bad, because it's a nice jam. luckily, it's all available here. while it isn't epic, it helps sustain the energy of the previous four songs, and set up what's going to happen after drums. space, and the transition from drums into space, has long been one of my favorite early '80s mix up jams. this space would have been a serious experience. spooky winds with spanish inflections and jerry's outerspace themes swirl and bend this around to be a truckin-other-truckin-other-truckin-other-truckin tug o' war. truckin wins, obviously, but there are hints of that early '70s melding of the two staples. mmm-mmm good.
nice recording too. behind the drums? if so, sounds good for that position.

21 song monster - I am sure everyone was sweat soaked after this one. Another '82 hidden gem. I saw this tape a bunch of times and never recorded it as it looked pretty plain vanilla - It's anything but. Yet another smoking MN show.

Ummmm . . . . Scarlet->Fire is . . . . ON FIRE!!
Great energy this show, spirits are high for sure.
Give it a listen NOW!
Oh, super sounds quality but I agree with turning Phil up a bit!

I was at this show and it is a blast to take a ride back! For those of us who have seen a few shows, have a recording is a real treat! Thanks for the memories! What a long strange trip it (is) been!

Umm, think this show was taped from "behind the stage". By OHR (the same taper as the St Paul 81 Audience that is up on the Archive)

Right out of the gates
What a great setlist! The band is smokin' hot right from the start-- the Bertha takes about a verse before they find the groove and it just goes from there. Great vocal inflections from Jerry on Candyman, such a powerful version. As noted, the Scarlet>Fire is top notch. The Lost sailor>saint combo is one of my favorite songs, and this is a fine version. At the end bobby relays a message that someone needs to get to first aide. Hope everyone was alright, even if we are 20 years removed! Great quality recording--mess with your levels to bring the band (especially Phil) up and the crowd down a little, and it's like you're there.

Why didn't I get this show when I could? Excellent quality Aud. Killer Scarlet-->Fire
This recording dwarfs any soundboard recording. It has a little boominess to it but you feel as if your about 15 rows deep dead center! Such nice instumental balance and the band was smoking on a sweltering night in St. Paul. Early eighties boards seem to lose Lesh too easily and his contributions are sorely missed. With auds like this there are no concerns...more than twelve people should have downloaded this by now. JF
